High school student off to Paraguay

When I found out I would be going to Paraguay for 8 weeks with the Amigos program, I thought it would be a good idea to learn some Guarani, their native language.  My parents had taken Spanish lessons from Camila and knew she also speaks Guarani.  In five or six lessons with Camila I developed a good foundation that helped me a lot in Paraguay.  My host family was so excited to speak their first language with me, and the foundation I got from Camila prepared me to continue learning from them as well.
